MiWay (formerly known as Mississauga Transit), is a public transport agency serving Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. The city's Transportation and Works department is in charge of its operation.

MiWay only operates buses and, as part of the Greater Toronto Area, connects to commuter rail with GO Transit. The system also connects with Brampton Transit to the north, Oakville Transit to the west, York Region Transit to the northeast, and the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) to the east, including the Islington and Kipling subway stations on the Bloor–Danforth line. MiWay is a member of the Canadian Urban Transit Association.

In 2012, MiWay's annual ridership was 34.5 million passengers, with more than 50 million boardings.[2][3]

History[edit]

MiWay was first operated by Charterways Limited as Mississauga Transit Systems with four buses in 1969, but it was acquired by the city's newly formed Mississauga Transit in 1974, incorporating the former towns of Mississauga, Port Credit and Streetsville. Services began on November 1, 1973.

It later acquired routes formerly operated by others, such as;

Mississauga Transit was renamed MiWay on October 4, 2010. New MiWay-branded hybrid buses entered service, with orange MiLocal buses on local routes and blue MiExpress buses on express routes. Advertisements were placed on buses and shelters in September 2010 to introduce users to the new branding. Older buses using the old logo would continue to be used until they are decommissioned. Service levels did not change with the rebranding.[4]

The reason for the company's new name is twofold: "Mi" could be interpreted as standing for Mississauga, and it is also a homophone of "My", suggesting possession.

On December 1, 2011, the last high-floor bus retired, making the transit fleet 100% low-floor and fully accessible. As of October 22, 2012, bus stop pads have been put at all stops that MiWay serves. This allowed all routes, hence the entire system, to become fully accessible.[1]

TTC-contracted routes[edit]

Toronto Transit Commission routes within Mississauga require an exact cash fare, or MiWay ticket, transfer or pass or TTC ticket or token, depending on the category that the passenger falls on to. All TTC passes (day, weekly and monthly) are not valid for travel in the Mississauga Fare Zone. There are transfer privileges to and from Mississauga Transit routes. Only one route, 52 Lawrence West, is operated by the TTC on behalf of the City of Mississauga.

Bus rapid transit[edit]

In 2007 Mississauga received federal funding for a bus rapid transit (BRT) line, the Mississauga Transitway. This line will be built alongside Highway 403, which passes through the City Centre. It will connect to Toronto and Pearson Airport at its terminus point, Renforth Drive.

Light rail transit[edit]

Main article: Hurontario-Main LRT

The Cities of Mississauga and Brampton propose a light rail transit (LRT) route on Hurontario Street between Port Credit and Downtown Brampton.[5] This route would link Port Credit, Mississauga City Centre, and Downtown Brampton in response to increasing congestion and anticipated high growth in the corridor.[6]

The LRT will connect to three GO Transit rail lines (Georgetown line at Brampton GO Station, Milton line at Cooksville GO Station, and Lakeshore West line at Port Credit GO Station), and seven rapid transit lines (Lakeshore Rapid Transit, Dundas Rapid Transit, Highway 407 Transitway, Züm Steeles, Züm Queen, Züm Main, and Mississauga BRT).

Accessibility[edit]

MiWay operates low floor, wheelchair accessible buses. The last high-floor bus was retired December 1, 2011. A separate transit service for the disabled, called Transhelp, is operated by the Peel Regional Municipality.

Schedules[edit]

Mississauga Transit's paper "Ride Schedules" were discontinued in 2004. From 2005 onward all timetables were only available from the system's website.

MiWay provides up-to-date bus schedules via their CityLink telephone service. In November 2005 MiWay inaugurated a schedule finder on their website, called Click 'n Ride,[7] with information specific to each bus stop.

Fares[edit]

As of January 30, 2012, the cash fare is $3.25 (exact change) for all passengers.[8] Transit passes are eligible for tax credits by the federal government. Presto cards are being used in the entire MiWay system since May 30, 2011.[9]

Presto programs[edit]

In 2007, MiWay was the first test site for the new Presto card, before being adopted across the entire MiWay system in May 2011.[11] Since launching the Presto card in Mississauga, MiWay has issued more than 9,000 cards and they are currently being used for more 2.4 million trips within the system.[1] MiWay offers two programs exclusively for Presto cardholders:

  • GO Bus co-fare:[12] Presto cardholders only have to pay 75 cents when connecting to/from GO Transit buses. The card can also be used to connect to/from GO Trains at a discounted fare. On the other hand, non-cardholders have to pay the regular MiWay fare when connecting to/from GO buses. However, they are still eligible to pay the discounted fare when connecting to/from a GO Train.
  • Loyalty program:[13] When Presto cardholders paid 12 regular MiWay fares in a calendar week, they would be able to ride for free for the rest of the week. GO Transit co-fares and fares paid on other systems will not be counted towards this program. The weekly ride count resets to zero Mondays.

Smart Commute Discount Transit Program[edit]

MiWay is also offering discounted adult transit passes to employees of the members of Smart Commute Mississauga[14] and Smart Commute Pearson Airport Area.[15] Transit passes are automatically paid by deductions on payrolls.

Employer Discount City Discount Total Discount Monthly Pass Cost
None None None $120.00
15% 5% 20% $96.00
25% or more 15% 40% or more $72.00 or less

Fleet[edit]

Mississauga Transit has an active bus fleet of 443 units: 340 regular 40-foot buses, 67 60-foot articulated buses, and 36 32-foot minibuses. MiWay operates only fully wheelchair-accessible buses (Handicapped/disabled access); however, some routes are still not designated as accessible due to the lack of bus stop pads for safe loading and unloading of disabled passengers.
